Welcome to Minstead Trust, where we see the potential in everyone - and especially in people with learning disabilities. We support them to build on that potential to achieve greater independence, lead fulfilled lives and live as full citizens in our society.

Our unique style delivers highly effective services. It is based on a strong community spirit, where we value each person. Our focus is on providing Work Skills, Life Skills and better Health and Wellbeing for people with learning disabilities.
